Re: Buggers !
Dident really bother me, we dont use the word bugger up north,unless your a bit posh :P Anyway it was just a slang word, like jerrys or yanks etc. Plus there was their official name the Formics anyway.
The Shadow series (beans) was my favourite, only read the Speaker For The Dead series once whih reminds me I should really reread it. Dident like how it ended really.
